Intex hasn't risen to the level of Micromax, but it is gaining rapidly in the Indian market. To rival its competitors, the company already has a dedicated series called - Aqua. The Aqua series is basically offers broad range of Android smartphones at different price range. The Indian based manufacturer delivered a power packed Phablet called - Aqua Style, a 5.9 inch dual core phablet flavored with Android 4.0 ICS.
After the surprise success of the Micromax Canvas HD smartphone in the Indian market; it would be safe to say that other tech vendors are also ready to display their engineering skills in the coming days.
While, budget phablets in India still costs more than Rs. 9,000, still, they are getting cheaper day-by-day, but why not to ask affordable bigger display smartphones, if any, are in the pipeline. This is what the manufacturer has to say, "Our major focus is to make smartphone more affordable. Secondly we will offer bigger screen models at further better price. We are planning another 3-4 models between the price range of Rs 5000-9000."
